Can I stop my pills mid pack?

Post by Corrie_Newman »

I am finally coming off birth control and my husband was just cleared from his vasectomy that he had 3 months ago. Is it okay to stop my birth control mid pack or should I finish the pack and stop after that? I’m guessing since I’m only truly having a pill bleed and not a real period that it does matter when I stop, but would love your response.
Thank you!

In general, it's fine to just stop a combined pill mid-pack. As you say, it's not a cycle anyway.
